Is your wound infected?
It is important to monitor your wound for infection as you take care of it on a daily basis. If your wound changes in appearance, this does not necessary mean it is infected. While working in a surgical practice, we have noticed some common concerns that our patients have about their wounds. While some of these complaints can be serious, others are easily preventable by avoiding some common mistakes. These include:
1. Too much or too little ointment
2. Irritation around the wound due to harsh adhesives or large bandages.
3. Using your own products on open wounds
4. "My wounds need fresh air"
5. Hydrogen peroxide
6. Wash your hands!
